Have you considered providing video of your services? What about live streaming video? New Hope Christian Fellowship in Honolulu, this last June, started streaming their services live to iPhone and iPod Touch users. New Hope seeks out new ways to incorporate technology into their services and community. With this addition they aim to make it possible for people to attend church basically anywhere. This is part of New Hope's desire to continually develop new ways to use technology to make the church's website more widely available. New Hope's Technology and Innovations Director, Michael Sharpe, explains, "Typically, churches are years behind other organizations when it comes to technology and innovation. We have tried to reverse that trend and pioneer new ways to spread the Gospel using the most current tools available. We don't mind the long hours and stress that comes with innovating because we know that if we can come up with something useful, it can be used by other churches around the world." The church streams all five weekend services from it's mobile website at


Yes, used the in Dec 2009 from my laptop to stream a local church funeral to relatives in Europe. It worked well and the overseas family was delighted to be able to share in real time.

I could have used my iPhone (that works well too) but was concerned about the quality of sound/video etc.
The only problem with it does not permit uploading a video afterwards.
Any suggestions about uploading video?

I've used Qik from my iPhone before. It allows you to stream to the web, but also keeps the video available afterwards. The quality isn't the best, but it gets the point across.
